    Now, Nelson & Opal, I think it’s best to leave Earl alone.

    A typewriter? How quaint. But where do you get ribbons for one of those things these days?

    Where do you get ribbons for a typewriter? At the same store you buy carbon paper!

    Oh leave him alone. He’s not bothering anyone. You can get some things done while he’s out of the way.

    @WillardMBaker

    Why would you need a new ribbon? You just rewind the old one!

    The better machines reversed ribbon direction when they got to either end. And most had a ribbon shift for red, so if you use a 1-color ribbon, you can shift to the other half. I’ve even added a few drops of a solvent to bleed the edges into the middle. But there comes a time —

    My grandmother passed away last year at almost 98 years old. I treasure the memoir she left us, and only wish it had been written in even greater detail.

    Ah, the teletype. No correction, stream of thought only.
    In the seventies it was the link between Fort Yukon and Fairbanks.
    Although flight manifests were sent for every flight 90% of the usage was pure gossip and happenings.
    No satellites then, microwave relay dishes every hundred miles.
    .
    I do not miss those days, life is easier now.

    My first typewriter was an Olivetti portable, that I used throughout my high school and early college years. My mother used an old Royal Office until she learned how to use a computer in her early ’80’s.
    I have to admit a bit of nostalgia for the old typewriter but really prefer my laptop or PC to write with ( gotta love Spell Check, Thesaurus, etc. )
